Taco Bus Founder

AUTHENTIC MEXICAN CUISINE

Chef Rene returns to the RP Culinary Center for a series of classes with recipes from his homeland, Mexico. Tonight is all about summer flavors.

Many of you may know of Chef Rene's culinary accident earlier this year.  He has fully recovered and is ready to be back in the kitchen and we are thrilled he has decided to create a series of class this summer and fall to meet YOUR requests here at the RP.

Now he has a new project, a smaller kitchen concept where he can do his cooking called Rene’s Mexican Kitchen. He is gearing to open early fall 2018 in the Seminole Heights area of Tampa.

Like his classes at the Rolling Pin, the food will be traditional, regional, old family recipes and foods that are vintage gems. Both corn and flour tortilla will be made in house by hand. If you have traveled to Mexico, and ventured to small towns, food markets, urban street food and small fondas (mom-and-pop restaurants) you know what kind of food he serves.

Come and learn to cook and taste culinary treasures from the heart of Mexico with Chef Rene.


Tonight's Menu:

Watermelon water - Classic “agua fresca” a lemonade style drink but instead of lemon is made with summer seasonal watermelon

Cool avocado soup - Velvety, refreshing, cool avocado soup, topped with crispy tortilla strips and queso fresco

Fresh seafood cocktail - Shrimp, Octopus, Scallop and Crab, in a refreshing tomato-clamato juice/sauce

Flautas - Crunchy taquitos filled with shredded chicken and topped with creamy poblano sauce

DOUGHNUT WORKSHOP
 

Chef Dave Presents

DOUGHNUT WORKSHOP



A doughnut - or donut - is a type of fried or baked dough confectionery or dessert food. The doughnut is popular in many countries and prepared in various forms as a sweet snack that can be homemade and embellished with ease. They are usually deep-fried from a flour dough, and typically either ring-shaped or without a hole and often filled. Other types of batters can also be used, and various toppings and flavorings are used for different types, such as sugar, chocolate, or maple glazing.

The two most common types are the toroidal ring doughnut and the filled doughnut, which is injected with fruit preserves, cream, custard, or other sweet fillings. A small spherical piece of dough may be cooked as a doughnut hole. Other shapes include rings, balls, and flattened spheres, as well as ear shapes and twists - the variations are almost endless. Doughnut varieties are also divided into cake and risen type doughnuts.

Now that we have the proper definition, we can now get into the real deal.  Let's fry and bake these babies and start eating amazing homemade creations. 

Hope you can join in the making of sweet treats! 

Today's Menu:

Classic French Cruller with Maple Sugar Glace

Baked Cake Doughnut with Chocolate Ganache Icing

Sweet Potato and Carrot Doughnut with Butter Cream Frosting

Lemon Curd Filled Yeast Doughnut

Join Chef Todd Lopez as he shares his technique for an American favorite with a Spanish twist. 

Guests at this class will also be entered into a drawing for a signed TAMPA BAY LIGHTNING PUCK!

Finally, learn how to use your knives and care for them!

This course is ideal for amateur cooks, regardless of how long you've been pursuing your hobby. The knife is the most basic of kitchen tools and certainly the most important. At the very least, the class will teach you how to work more efficiently. At most, you’ll be less likely to lose a digit.

Each student will have the opportunity to test out what they learn and will also enjoy a meal of vegeatable soup and gourmet panini. 

In this Hands-on and demonstration 2 1/2 hours class you will learn and practice:

1) Anatomy of a Knife
2) What Kind of Knives Do you need?
3) Proper Work Station/Best Type of Cutting Board
4) Storing Your Knife
5) Holding Your Knife
6) Ensuring Safety: Keeping Your Knife Sharp
7) How to Seed and Julienne Bell Peppers, carrots, potatoes and various vegetables
8) How to Dice and Slice Onions

We will use our skills to make homemade vegetable soup and designer grilled cheese sandwiches.

This is a HANDS-ON style class.   Each student may bring in a few of their knives to practice sharpening!

House wine, beer, coffee and iced tea are included. Other wines by the bottle and the glass are available at an additional charge.

CHEF RENE VALENZUELA
AUTHETIC MEXICAN CUISINE
TRADITIONAL MOLE
 

RP WELCOMES BACK CHEF RENE VALENZUELA
Taco Bus Founder

AUTHENTIC MEXICAN CUISINE
TRADITIONAL MOLE
 
 

Chef Rene returns to the RP Culinary Center for a series of classes with recipes from his homeland, Mexico. Tonight is all about MOLE.

Many of you may know of Chef Rene's culinary accident earlier this year.  He has fully recovered and is ready to be back in the kitchen and we are thrilled he has decided to create a series of class this summer and fall to meet YOUR requests here at the RP.

Now he has a new project, a smaller kitchen concept where he can do his cooking called Rene’s Mexican Kitchen. He is gearing to open early fall 2018 in the Seminole Heights area of Tampa.

Like his classes at the Rolling Pin, the food will be traditional, regional, old family recipes and foods that are vintage gems. Both corn and flour tortilla will be made in house by hand. If you have traveled to Mexico, and ventured to small towns, food markets, urban street food and small fondas (mom-and-pop restaurants) you know what kind of food he serves.

Come and learn to cook and taste culinary treasures from the heart of Mexico with Chef Rene.

Tonight's Menu:

Mole with Chicken - Mole often referred as the “King of Mexican Food” is a sauce made from different dry chiles and spices and thickened with seeds and nuts. There are hundreds of regional moles. In this class we will make one from the Mexican State of Guerrero, a brick red colored mole that is relatively easy to make and very delicious.

Garlicky White Rice - Traditional white rice, a more neutral flavor than the traditional red, but with a slight garlic flavoring. Its the traditional accompaniment to this dish to soak up the mole.

Handmade Tortillas - Same as the rice, they help make tacos and mop the Mole Sauce.

Tequila Flambe Pinapple and Vanilla Ice Cream


This is a DEMONSTRATION style class.
  

House wines, beer, iced tea, and coffee are included. Other wines by the bottle and the glass are available at an additional charge.

This class offers you a trip to sunny Tuscany without having to present your passport.  Let Chef Nina transport you to this amazing area of Italy through her food. 


Tonight's Menu

Tuscan White Bean Soup - This classic soup is made with creamy cannellini beans and background flavors that make Tuscany famous.

Pancetta Wrapped Pork Roast with Roasted Potatoes - This pork roast is wrapped in prosciutto and threaded with fresh rosemary sprigs, then roasted to perfection. The result is one of the juiciest, most tender roasts that you can imagine. Served along with wedges of roasted potato and roasted garlic.

Sweet and Sour Onions with Balsamic Vinegar - One of the simplest vegetable dishes to prepare is also the most unique. Pared with the pork roast makes this a memorable meal.

Tuscan Baked Apples - A baked apple dessert with a sauce of Vin Santo “the Saints wine”.  It tastes like the filling of the best apple strudel.


This is a DEMONSTRATION style class.

House wine, beer, coffee and iced tea are included. Other wines by the bottle and the glass are available at an additional charge.
